Second graders from Martin Luther King Junior Education Center in Detroit, MI, were in for a treat Wednesday morning when they got to partake in the kick-off event for NFPA’s Fire Prevention Week Partnership with Domino’s. The students participated in a variety of activities to learn about fire safety and even got a special visit from Sparky the Fire Dog.Sparky-Detroit

The event, which was hosted by Detroit Fire Department – Engine 30, begins Domino’s partnership with NFPA and fire stations across the country to deliver pizzas and fire safety messages throughout Fire Prevention Week. Random customers will be chosen to have their pizza delivered by fire truck. If the customers who receive fire truck deliveries have working smoke alarms, their pizza is free! Fire trucks making deliveries will also be stocked with working smoke alarms and batteries to make sure every home delivered to during the campaign has working smoke alarms.

The first pizza delivered via fire truck went out at 11 o’clock today with the help of Engine 30 and featured special guest Sparky the Fire Dog.
